Article about 'solar energy in a suitcase'
« on: March 02, 2013, 09:06:21 PM »
From CNN 
"Solar energy in a suitcase is an invention saving lives around the world in places that lack reliable electricity.

Dr. Laura Stachel discovered several years ago that many women and babies were dying during childbirth simply because there wasn't adequate light to treat them. So she and her husband came up with a portable solar energy kit to provide light and power when necessary. Since 2009, their nonprofit, We Care Solar, has given out nearly 250 free kits to medical facilities in Africa, Asia and South America."
